Autumn Colors

I have been envious of all the brightly colored autumn leaves that my blog friends have been posting. Here is a view of my wooded area which is still the color green. I realized I do have autumn color East Texas style. Enjoy my November color.

I did actually find some colored leaves from the Chinese Tallow tree which reliably changes color every year.

    I searched and searched for Cardinal Flower this year, but all the places I found it last year were dry as a bone. I think the drought probably affected a lot of wildflowers. You do have a lovely assortment of colors. Too bad the Chinese Tallow is such a nasty invasive, like the Salt Cedar.

    Autumn colors in Texas rock. No, we don’t have the reds, golds, and burgundy, but we do have some gorgeous blooming-n-berrying things, providing sustenance for critters. Great set of photos! That Cardinal Flower–swoon!

    And fine color it is!

  4. Well, you make us more northern types pine for summer color. Though, coastal North Carolina doesn’t get all that cold.

  5. I have similar fall color. Seek and ye shall find.

    You have some lovely colours in your garden! The coral salvia is beautiful (the blue one too), and the Camellias are gorgeous too – something I can only dream of here! Certainly enough colour still to sustain passing butterflies. 😃

  8. I just mentioned on Tina’s post how I’d never guess all these flowers to be autumn specimens. Such a difference in environments.
